BlackBerry KEYone will not get Android Oreo at Sprint
BlackBerry KEYone is definitely receiving Android Oreo, but that's likely to be the last major update the smartphone will ever get. Since the device was launched less than two years ago, it makes sense for the Canadian company to want to provide customers with at least one major Android OS update.

Unfortunately, not everyone who bought the BlackBerry KEYone will receive the long-awaited Android Oreo update. We already reported that many Canadian carriers have pushed out the update some weeks ago, but one particular carrier in the United States will not release the BlackBerry KEYone Oreo update.

Sprint confirmed earlier this month that its own BlackBerry KEYone variant will not receive Android Oreo, so if you own such a device, you'll probably want to switch to another phone if you want a new Android version.

However, this doesn't mean that other US carriers won't release Android Oreo for BlackBerry KEYone, so let's just wait and see what they'll say about it.
